Molly Burch was interested in music from an early age, growing up in Los Angeles under the parenthood of mother and father who worked in Hollywood, as she slowly refining her distinctive voice in North Carolina studying Jazz Vocal Performance.
Last month, the Austin-based singer-songwriter released her debut album ‘Please Be Mine‘ on Captured Tracks, a label with an excellent track record of breaking future stars. Burch will be visiting Manchester this may, on stage at Soup Kitchen during an expansive summer tour of Europe.
Reviews for ‘Please Be Mine’ are already offering overwhelming praise for her wistful love songs on a record that shows hints of Angel Olson, First Aid Kit and Beach House but does not lose sight of Burch’s own distinctive direction. Her latest single and the album’s title track is a perfect example of crisp retro arrangements placed perfectly alongside Molly’s own vocal prowess, including a wonderful, breathy vibrato which occasionally makes itself known. For a singer who namechecks Billie Holiday, Patsy Cline and Nina Simone as influences, Burch’s mountainous vocal is only what you can expect.
Burch may be a performer in the early days of her career, but her strong American songwriting is leaving fans eager for her upcoming European performances, as she currently continues to fine-tune her live set touring the US and Canada.
Molly Burch plays at Soup Kitchen on Wednesday 31st May, 2017. Tickets are available here.
